What is her name?

Postby JK5 on Wed Aug 21, 2013 9:02 am

At the end of the disintoxication (end of chapter 62,) Nicholas realizes that for all the masks that Lily has worn (ie. Artemis, Astarte, Desdemona) he realizes who she really is. He says "But I knew her real name."
The name is never given to us. This puzzles me. One critic said Nicholas meant Lily was really Eve. Maybe, but I'm not sure. What you think?
